Approx. 325 US$ per person (2 to 3 pax)
Hanoi - Ha Long City - Halong Bay - Nam Cat Beach - Ho Ba Ham Island - Cat Ba Island - Hai Phong - Hanoi
Ha Long Bay, located in the Gulf of Tonkin, covers an area of 1500 square km. with more than a thousand limestone peaks soaring from its crystalline emerald water. The calm sea provides an ideal location for sea kayaking as we paddle through a maze of islets amid dramatic natural scenery. With our modern kayaking equipment, we are able to maximize on speed and maneuverability as we paddle through the open sea and explore the many hidden lagoons and stalagmite caves that are difficult to access by any other means. After a day of paddling, we unwind on a deserted beach on one of Halong's many islands and enjoy dinner before retiring to sleep under a blanket of stars. This tour is ideal for those people who have very limited time in their schedule. Combining the best of sea kayaking and camping it allows the novice and the experienced kayakers to sample the delights of this sport in some of Vietnam's most stunning scenery.
